The Collector

**The Collector is my other name.

I choose this because it fits me well.

I wander along a little path in the woods

and I am looking down to find treasures.

One of a kinds. I now have many treasures:

feathers. rocks. fossils. butterflies.

birds nests. old pottery. old rusted metal.

I found this along a flooded plain while walking

yesterday. It is made with the wild little grapevines

that grow in the area.

I am thinking today how fragile it is.

How it was home once upon a time.

It created life and shelter from the harshness.

I love that all these small findings tell a story.

I love my little diana lens and how

it has a mind of it's own and it creates

a mood in a photo at will. dreamy little diana

(I am the collector.)

a little musing today for Texture Tuesday, Triptych,

Sweet Shot Tuesday, Show Off Your Shot, and

Naptime Momtog

**Photo edited in PSE. Kim Klassen texture "aurora" applied, erased at 12%
and color burn applied for contrast, then "embrace" applied in soft light at 5%.
